I just want to say thank you for having me to discuss my new release Dandelion Dreams.
My new release is all about Maddie. Madelyn Presley Jones is a typical city girl but she does have a past with the country. When Maddie receives a call, it changes the course of her life. Maddie has to decide whether her future is in the city or taking care of Kyle, her aunt’s adopted son with special needs. It’s the most important decision she will ever make and Lincoln Davies, Kyle’s social worker, sets out to help.
I actually started this book four years ago and got sidetracked when we went through foster care and the adoption of our youngest granddaughter. It was a long and emotional process, and the middle of it all, we bought and moved into a bigger house. Crazy, huh? So, now that we are all settled, I am back to writing and realized just how much I missed it.
How I Became An Author
This is a great question. I have been writing for as long as can remember. Even when I was a child, I always had a notebook and I would write poems and short stories. In my twenties, I started sending things out to a publisher, but stopped when I got divorced and was raising my two children. It wasn’t until 2005, when I was writing web copy, that I started to research publishing again. I chose to be self-published, as I like to be in control of everything. With traditional publishing, very few authors have any control over their own work.
Which Of Your Novels Should Be Made Into A Movie?
My novel Dragonfly Wishes would be perfect. In fact, I have submitted it to TaleFlick, a library of curated material where producers can find great books for their next movies. Dragonfly Wishes is the story of a woman who lost everything, her husband and child, and now has to learn how to live again. TaleFlick named it as a Top Pick and states “Dragonly Wishes has a strong and devastating premise, which draws the reader in immediately. Following Callie’s journey is hard but satisfying, and the life lesson she leaves us with makes the story completely worth our time. Although it is about the profoundly deep emotional journey, the external plot is filled with entertaining beats keeping it interesting and satisfying. I am really looking forward to what this could mean for this novel! But I can honestly say that I think Dandelion Dreams would make a great movie, too!
I am currently working on another series set in Maine. The Moose Valley series setting is Northern Maine where the moose are big, and the community is tight-knit. This series is a little different for me, as it involves more than a love story. The first murder in Moose Valley takes place in the first book of the series. While I do not have a title yet, I am hoping for a July release.
The second book in the Cove’s Port Series, Daisies and Sunshine, should be released in August.

Cove’s Port Series Book 1
by Penny Harmon
Genre: Women’s Fiction
A dream can change more than once in a lifetime!
Madelyn “Maddie” Jones loves Jimmy Choos, fancy restaurants, and the city life she worked so hard to create. With a promotion on the line, she can’t let anything get in her way. Not staying out late. Not partying. Not friends. And definitely not love!
But when a phone call sends her life spinning out of control, she has no choice to put everything on hold and move to Maine.
Dandelion Farm isn’t what she expected. With five dogs, a slew of farm animals, and Kyle, her aunt’s adopted son with special needs, Maddie has her work cut out for her.
Will Lincoln Davies, Kyle’s social worker, drive Maddie away? Or worse-convince her to stay?
Penny Harmon began writing at an early age and developed a great love of words over the years. After her children were grown, she took her writing more seriously and has published in both newspapers and magazines.

Five more books in the Rocky Isle Romance series have since been published.
In 2017, Penny branched out with her first women’s fiction novel, Dragonfly Wishes and, soon after, published Love’s Song with Sweet Promise Press. Love’s Song is not available at the moment, but will be re-released with a new title.
Her book Dandelion Dreams just released on June 3, 2021.
